Cleaning Robots, Workers in Powered Suits to Help Out at Japan Airport
Only lower torso/leg suits, not the full HAL suit, but it's a start. Surprised Cyberdyne is diversifying into drone UGV's though.

Japanese government wants to build 'back-up' Tokyo (Wired UK)
Follow the money, since this smells like pork to keep Itami airport afloat. Unfortunately, the normally sane option of just setting up in Osaka proper faces NIMBY issues for land allocation, and there is something to be said for a green field facility, provided it is actually done right. I don't expect it to be done right though, since that is usually very ugly, and japanese people have become overly concerned about outward appearances these days. Also, what took them so long? The Hanshin earthquake should have been enough to show the need for government continuity facilities, but no one did jack then. It takes a real rumbler felt in Tokyo to get them to move? Typical reactive behavior.

The Manhattan Airport Foundation
They want to build over Central Park in NYC with an airport. Never mind the fact that the runways would probably be strictly in/out in one direction only, and New Yorkers would have 9/11 PTSD attacks hourly...
